Fantastic selection, quick and friendly service, good value and very good sake!
The food was not heated very well and was almost cold if I was the service was slow. It seemed that priority was given to the takeaway service. I would not recommend anyone to go here
Amazing food and well priced drink. Really could not have asked for more. Cash only is a small issue.
Nice spot; great sushi, menu has lots of variety, and very good value. Casual vibe.
Only downside was delivery drivers coming and going all the time.
Try the miso aubergine; it's delicious.
Service was well-timed and friendly, delicious food and very affordable!
Very friendly, really good food and great value. Don’t visit Edinburgh without going to Bentoya!
Love Bentoya. Quick and tasty food. Slightly chilly day we visited but think it was delivery day!
Great meal and service however the endless amount of deliveroos hovering around the tables and bar was a little annoying. Also created a cold draft every 5 minutes from going in and out.
Cheap & cheerful but found it hard to see past the dirty menus & slippery greasy floor :/
We often visit Bentoya, and this time came along with friends who hadn't been before. As always the sushi was fantastic, and great value.
Service was appalling, food took more than an hour and then arrived cold, staff rude and unhelpful. Very disappointing from what used to be my favourite restaurant. Deliveroo/Takeaway orders obviously the problem. Won't be returning.
You can only pay Cash. Despite of that, happy with the place and the menu
It was awful. The service was terrible and the staff were aloof and very slow. The aubergine stater was good but everything else we had was unnecessary greasy or oily and my husband wasn't well afterwards. It just didn't seem very clean either. I’m afraid I would not recommend anyone go there.
They were very careful with my food allergy and the food was well presented and made.
Its a place for younger public. We was arround 50 but it did work fine annyway. The decor is very simple but works.
For us it was a local resturang that serve ok food to a ok money. The food was fresh and you get gorged :)

Food at Bentoya is amazing.
The best thing for me about this place is that they do not have only sushi and the more common food you find normally in a Japanese restaurant,there also plenty of traditional Japan dishes.
Forgot one of our starters but happily took it off the bill at the end, very cramped, could not get out without knocking tables on both sides and the tables were too small for all of the food.
This was a bit of a Morecambe & Wise dinner: all the right food, but not necessarily in the right order. I waited to last to get my starter - delicious sashimi by the way- when all the others at the table had finished theirs, and then almost simultaneously my main arrived. They stared as I ate. BYOB is a good idea and adds value for the diner, but i didn’t think the staff were attentive and seemed clueless as to organisation and friendliness - happier to chat amongst themselves.
Amazing food at very reasonable prices. Friendly staff and overall a nice, relaxed vibe. Will definitely be going back!
Service was not good. We ordered Kaiso salad but it didn’t come. We found the item was still in the bill and asked the waiter to cancel it. He agreed without any hesitation. It seemed to me that they were aware of this but still put it in the bill deliberately. Food was just ok. Won’t recommend.
Sushi rolls were bad. There were too many sauces, didn’t like them at all. Sashimi was fresh though, and cooked food was fine. However I went there mainly for sushi so was disappointed.
This is the third visit to Bentoya and we will be back. The food is great, the price reasonable for the quality and the service pretty good too.
My only gripe this time round was the cold draft. We were seated in the front half of the restaurant so every time the door opened we got an icy blast. One table were quick off the mark and moved over to the window to get out of the draft.
When the warmer weather appears it will go back to being a great space to eat.
Awesome experience. Highly recommend everyone to at least try once.
Apart from bringing the wrong dish ,food was of a good standard and tasty
Pleasant evening out - relaxed place with no pressure to rush us out. On the down side restaurant failed to find my booking but fortunately had a spare table.; service was a little slow but as we were in no rush this was not a problem. Food was very tasty.
The food in this restaurant is very nice. The experience was ruined by the service that was rushed. We were half an hour early but easily accommodated. I can only imagine how the service would have been if we were on time.
An example of the hurried service was when we asked to see the desserts and were presented with the bill ???
All the staff seemed more determined to go home than serve. Not only us but the table next to us were having the same problem.
It ruined the experience but there are plenty of other sushi restaurants in Edinburgh for us to try.
The bento boxes are filling with a nice selection to choose from. The veggie was nice but the 3 small spring rolls that come with it aren't good. Try the mochi icecream after :)
This was my first visit to Bentoya and it was lovely especially the food which was top notch. Will be back again no hesitation.
Great selection of sushi. Very much enjoyed our meal.
Tasty and affordable quality Japanese food.
Fantastic food at a really reasonable price. We had to sit downstairs because there was a massive group upstairs but the servers were still attentive and timely. Book in advance to be sure you get a seat because you don't want to miss out!
Good menu choices and food was really tasty, we both loved it and will be heading back soon
Yum!! This was delicious sushi :-)
